San Diego County Accident

Pedestrian Struck By Train in Sorrento Valley

By San Diego Injury Lawyer on February 21, 2012 - Comments off

18-year-old Luis Cortez was struck and injured in a severe pedestrian accident that occurred on February 20, 2012, around 3 p.m. in Sorrento Valley. According to the sheriff’s department, Cortez was walking on the railroad tracks near the Sorrento Valley Station when a northbound AMTRAK train traveling at 45 mph struck him.
Cortez sustained minor injuries and was put on the train to the Solana Beach Station by AMTRAK personnel after examining his condition. He was later transported to Scripps Hospital in La Jolla for medical treatment.

Based upon a reading of Section 21950, it is quite possible that both the train conductor and pedestrian may be responsible for this pedestrian accident. If the AMTRAK operator saw or could have seen the pedestrian crossing the rail tracks, this accident could have been prevented. Further, because the pedestrian may not be 100% at fault and the driver 100% fault-free under their responsibilities set forth by California law, the family of the pedestrian may still be able to recover damages.
In situations such as this one, where a pedestrian is the victim of a serious train accident, the family members of the victim may benefit from speaking with a San Diego pedestrian accident lawyer.
Our personal injury law office hopes that the injuries suffered by the victim do not prove fatal.

By San Diego Injury Lawyer on November 30, 2011 - Comments off

Two cyclists, a 10-year-old girl and a 23-year-old woman, are recovering from injuries they sustained after being hit by vehicles in two different auto accidents in San Diego.
The 10-year-old girl was riding eastbound on Catalina Boulevard at about 7:20 a.m. Tuesday when a 2011 Chevy van turned the corner on Wilcoz and hit her at the intersection. Despite what most people think, the young girl knows how to ride and was doing it safely. She competes in triathlons for kids and was riding in front of her dad, who was training with her. Her father barely avoided the collision.
The girl was taken to the hospital for a fractured leg and collar bone.
The 23-year-old woman sustained non-life-threatening facial fractures when a Hyundai SUV tried to pass her on the 4900 block of College Avenue, near Cresita Drive, at about 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday. The 55 year-old SUV driver was obviously in too much of a hurry to wait until it was safe to pass.
Both drivers’ negligent driving caused these bicycle accidents, and they may be held liable for the damages, including medical bills, loss of income, etc. The victims’ family should immediately seek counsel with a San Diego County bike collision attorney to learn about how to get the compensation they need to cover these expenses.
